Stand Up & Party…

“If there is going to be a revolution there must be a revolutionary party…”


Following the post “Move along Billy Bragg…” by Jenny Harris which is here I have put together a short mix of protest songs. The obvious choice is Bob Marley’s “Get Up, Stand Up” which is included here. I must concede that none of these songs are recent.

What songs would you include in your protest mix? Tell us in the comments.
